MONTREAL – The criminal proceedings against Quebec City’s mosque shooter provided a glimpse into how police use computers to extract information about a suspect, even if that data has been erased.Alexandre Bissonnette’s seized laptop was forced to reveal its secrets through a specialized internet evidence finder software called IEF, created by Canadian company Magnet Forensics, which was founded by former Ontario police officer Jad Saliba.Bissonnette, 28, pleaded guilty earlier this year to six charges of first-degree murder and six of attempted murder. His sentencing arguments are set to begin Monday.The demand for such software services is exploding, according to Genevieve Lajeunesse of Crypto.Quebec, an independent media focusing on digital security, information technology and intelligence.“There isn’t a single crime scene today that doesn’t have a technological element,” she said.IEF’s client list includes the FBI, the Danish and UK governments, as well as police in Lima, Peru and other Western countries.In Canada, prosecutors in the case of Guy Turcotte used internet search data to show the former cardiologist had looked up methods of painless suicide before killing his two young children.The information gleaned from computers is vital for mounting the prosecution’s case.In Bissonnette’s case, the police looked for evidence that the murders were premeditated, and if they had been committed in the name of an ideology.Concretely, the software provides access to the contents of zip files, RAM memory, directories, social media chat data, P2P file sharing, web mail, videos on YouTube, photos, the use of USB keys, how the info was shared, and the history of the internet browser – even if it has been deleted.These digital research tools can save hours of work by sparing police officers the job of having to read everything on Skype, Facebook, or web browsers.The amount of data can be imposing: in Bissonnette’s case, the software detected 31,895 web links, 4,742 Google searches, 3,388 Facebook links and 60,417 images.The tool finds everything, even data that is invisible to the human eye or seemingly irrelevant.The RCMP investigator tasked with investigating Bissonnette’s laptop was able to see not only potentially incriminating videos of executions, but also searches for Halloween costumes or a recipe for vol-au-vent.The data is also precise: it showed investigators that only an hour and a half before he gunned down six worshippers in a Quebec City mosque, Bissonnette had viewed a video on how to operate the Glock handgun he would use in the slaying.While they save time, there’s a risk that the results of searches can be taken out of context, Lajeunesse said. As an example, what do 20 searches on bombs mean, compared to a thousand for recipes?“My internet search history looks quite a bit like Alexandre Bissonnette’s,” she said, noting that part of her job involves researching far-right groups.Police forces are reluctant to discuss their investigation methods, in order to not divulge their methods to criminals.RCMP declined to comment on the subject other to confrim it used certain tools by Magnet Forensics.Quebec provincial police would not say what technology it used to uncover evidence.Spokesman Hugo Fournier did say the force has a technology support unit comprised of some 40 police officers who, with support from computer scientists, target mainly organized crime.Police forces aren’t the only ones to use the technology.Hexigent Consulting, a private specialty firm, is hired by lawyers and occasionally police to extract potentially incriminating information from cell phones and computers and pass it on to clients.Founder Ryan Duquette, a former Ontario police officer, said criminals are increasingly learning new ways to cover their digital footprints, which increasingly makes investigators’ jobs harder.“But not impossible,” he said. “We have to get more creative.”Lajeunesse, for her part, believes that it’s impossible for someone to truly eliminate all traces of their history.Most people end up making mistakes, she said, noting that the founder of AlphaBay, one of the world’s biggest darknet website AlphaBay, was brought down after sending an email from a personal hotmail address.“To connect is to commit,” she said.

Loading… Barcelona have secured a much needed return to winning ways with a crucial 4-1 La Liga victory away at rivals Villarreal. Quique Setien’s side have reestablished their four point gap behind league leaders Real Madrid ahead of the final stretch of the 2019-20 season. La Blaugrana wanted a confidence boosting win at El Madrigal, and an early own goal from Pau Torres set them on their way after just four minutes. Despite a spell of pressure from Javier Calleja’s side, Barcelona were in ruthless mood, with Luis Suarez curling home a brilliant second goal on 20 minutes. The Uruguayan international was to be outdone however, as Antoine Griezmann produced an outrageous chip to put the away side 3-1 up just before the break.

Add to that a child who is gay, and coping with not only his or her own sexuality, but the effect on those close to him, like parents and friends.Psychotherapist John Sovec will address this issue February 20 as part of the Fusion Academyâ€™s Professional Speaker series. The interactive workshop will provideexploration, discussion, and tools to address the challenging issues facing LGBT teens as they discover their own sexuality.John Sovec, MA, LMFT, specializes in working with LGBT teens and their families during the coming-out process. He is a nationally recognized expert on LGBT teens and has been seen on the Ricki Lake Show, YHTV, The Advocate, Good Therapy and other programs.â€œThis is something that early on in my career I ran into, while working with LGBT teens who felt totally unsupported in their lives and their community,â€ Sovec explained.â€œI started looking around and had to explore to find training to specialize in this, and be able to put together a strong set of skills. But in doing that, I realized there are very few people out there doing what I thought there was a need for. I work with family service agencies, schools, and fellow psychology professionals to help train them and educate them as well as offer seminars for teachers and staff,â€ said Sovec.A young gay teen will face challenges at school and at home, as Sovec explains. â€œIf you really think about it, theyâ€™re living between their own developing LGBT identity and an environment where everything is skewed towards, â€˜Okay, this is a straight world, this is how it is,â€™â€ he said.Sovec adds, â€œThereâ€™s no straight teen who has to come out and say, â€œBy the way, Iâ€™m straight.â€And while parents might be accepting, the challenge can go beyond that, says Sovec.â€œA lot of parents will come to me and say, â€˜But they know that it wouldnâ€™t be a problem.â€™ But thatâ€™s not the point. The point is actually that moment for that kid to say it out loud, how it will influence how their parents view them, what will it do to their school environment, because there will be some kids who will be comfortable with it, and some that may bully them and make fun of them, and how will teachers accept it? What about if theyâ€™re on a sports team? How will the team or the coach accept it? So thereâ€™s a lot of fear that comes out for these kids really looking at, â€˜Iâ€™m making a statement about myself, and once I make that statement, I canâ€™t take it back and itâ€™s going to have huge repercussions on the community that I live, work and play in,â€™â€ he explained.Sovecâ€™s workshop will explore the realm of teen gay sexuality, as he explained, saying, â€œWeâ€™re actually going to be looking at some of the real basic things, all of the different flavors of sexuality and sexual identity that are out there right now. Weâ€™re going to look at the developmental phase that happens in the coming out process. Weâ€™re going to look at what your kid is going through when theyâ€™re in the process of coming out and the stages of that. And weâ€™re going to explore how the families, and adults and caring professionals can support that journey and be present with our kids.â€Sovec realizes that coming out today is vastly different from even one or two generations ago, but says, â€œI think for each family that goes through it, it really is a very individual experience. A lot of kids will decide that there is one parent who it would be easier for them to come out to first, and then theyâ€™ll practice that and then come out to the other parent later on.â€œAnd I really think it depends a lot on the parents upbringing themselves,â€ he continued, â€œas well as cultural and spiritual components. Weâ€™re lucky because weâ€™re in Pasadena, or Los Angeles, big cities where coming out is a more normalized experience. But when we move out of the bigger metropolitan areas, it still is a really challenging story for these kids to go through this.â€Sovec continued, â€œHere in Pasadena, a lot of kids kind of initially come out as bisexual, and strangely enough itâ€™s a cool thing to do these days. And, I think for kids come out as, being a gay or lesbian, it really does depend on the environment, their family their friends, and their school, as to how theyâ€™re accepted.â€John Sovec will present his workshop at Fusion Academy February 20, at 6:30 p.m.Fusion AcademyPasadena is at 825 Colorado Bl., Suite 118, Los Angeles.To learn more about his work visit www.JohnSovec.com or www.GayTeenTherapy.comFusion Academy is a fully accredited, private, middle and high school where all classes are taught one to one.
